Day and nighlife are comparable to the Famous French “Port de Saint-Tropez” or to Sardignia “Porto Cervo”

So where is the strange, laid-back island that everyone fell in love with?
It’s still there, if you know where to look. It’s found biking through Old Town at dusk, when the porches light up and jasmine fills the air, or catching an old-timer’s tale, drifting across a lonely bar.

Fishing Tournaments and Sport Fishing
The Key West Tournament is on May 16th, 17th, 18th (2014) and has piled up more than $100,000 in Cash and Prizes for winning anglers. The First Place Dolphin Worth $15,000! The largest dolphin weighing more than 55lbs wins a Mercury/Seahunter Boat worth $75,000.

THE BIG GAME Whoa! This isn’t working.” I yelled. “We gotta huddle up again.”
Alan connected with a few boats fishing for tuna 15 miles away. “Lads, we need some help. We’ve caught a fish and all 14 of us can’t get her on board. If we tow her to you, will you help out?”

Captain Steve Cabrel and his crew and a few others jumped at the opportunity to see this once in a lifetime fish. With 19 people and a winch, 1289 reluctantly gave up a few feet. Just enough to raise her out of the water, for the last time.

After thanking the fellow fisherman and providing a few well earned ‘beverages’, Seafari headed for Hamilton where social media had already resulted in a crowd drawn to the dock to see something very special. Something so rare that in the history of fishing, only 3 others have been pulled from the Atlantic Ocean and weighed in as larger fish. Something so rare that no other bigger had been caught in the world since the third largest was caught 10 years ago. Something so rare that the fishing world would know about it before the sun rose again.
For perspective, 1289 was bigger than any blue marlin caught and weighed in the Bahamas, Cape Verde Islands (1241 in ‘06), North Carolina (1228 in ‘08), St. Thomas/Virgin Islands (record was 1282), Australia, South Africa, New Zealand, Tahiti, Venezuela, Mexico, and all of the United States.

The cockpit flooded with water. Just the day before, I had read an article in March 2012 Marlin Magazine about the dangers of capsizing and sinking when the cockpit floods. “Filling the cockpit with thousands of gallons of seawater can lead to disaster…”, the article read.
A fisherman of Panama was battling a huge black marlin when the battle took a turn for the worse. Read more …The Marlin sank the boat.
My concerns went to defcon 5 when I heard the aft bilge alarm. Seconds later, to defcon 6 when the midship bilge alarm blared. Is this really happening? Is this really happening?! I thought to myself.

The equipment, boat and fishermen were all being stretched to the max! Could we hold on?! At what cost ?

The winch tightened more. “Whoa! This isn’t working.” I yelled. “We gotta huddle up again.”
